Urari Cacao Tours and Homestays
Almirante, Bocas del Toro, Panamá
Urari is an organization promoting economic independence through active participation of the community in the development of rural community tourism, using natural attractions and traditional culture to improve the economy and the quality of life for the indigenous community.
Visitors are able to participate in a range of activities from visiting the organic farms, learning the process of making chocolate from local cacao plantations, or staying overnight in the Eco Cabanas made in traditional Ngöbe design.
GV’s founder visited this small community in 2013 with her family and counts this among her favorite cultural interactions. From ages 13 to 60, each person had a wonderful experience learning about the Ngöbe culture.
Give advanced notice for tours. Homestays are overnight for 1+ nights; booked at least a day in advance.
